Top notch Italian cuisine. Menu and special items are exquisite. The veal is extremely tender. The short rib special was also excellent. The owner is a character and provides a touch of class. He is also great at recommending a nice bottle of wine.

Was recommended by a woman we met by chance in Mont Royal. Food was wonderful, service was tremendous. We were not rushed and our host Marcelo was charming, hospitable and good humoured. Highly recommend this on a trip to the best city in Canada

In downtown Montreal, not in the old port. Europea is side by side next to it. The food is traditional. Interior environment is nice. Everything is good. It's not a place you look for surprises.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We spent about $70CDN for dinner for 2, with an 2 entrees and a split appetizer (try the gnudi!) and a glass of wine. So worth it!
